Smart Card

Smart card technology in our Client-Card and MasterCard credit cards makes for the safest of transactions.

Convenient and safe
We're constantly trying to improve the quality of our service. National Bank uses both the smart-card and magnetic-stripe technologies on the same card, providing you with a convenient, safe and reliable payment solution, anywhere in the world.

All smart cards (debit and credit) require the cardholder to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to authenticate transactions. Memorize your confidential PIN so you can do transactions wherever smart card technology is used. You can at any time change your PIN at a National Bank ABM.

Gradual Smart Card Roll-out
Smart-card technology marks an important evolution in payment solutions in Canada. We have been progressively integrating this new technology into National Bank cards nationwide since 2009.

At merchants
We're also gradually rolling out smart-card point-of-sale terminals.
